Like many triathletes, Matthew Sharpe’s start in the sport began in the pool as a competitive swimmer in his hometown of Campbell River, B.C. Matthew was introduced to his first triathlon when he was nine years old in Comox, B.C. He immediately fell in love with the sport and has been a passionate and relentlessly dedicated triathlete ever since.

Matthew had early success while quickly progressing through the Canadian ranks. A two-time National Junior Series Champion, he won the 2010 Canadian Junior Championships and was ninth at the 2010 World Junior Championships.

A member of the National Development Team for five years, Matthew battled a string of injuries over a three-year period that saw him losing his National Team status and funding. However, through that adversity he persevered and came back in 2016 in full force, winning his first World Cup medal with a silver in Montreal. He backed that up weeks later with a career-best finish on the World Triathlon Series where he was 11th in Edmonton.

Now a member of the National Team and coached by Jono Hall, Matthew is looking to become a more consistent performer on the World Triathlon Series, while not losing sight of his ultimate goals to represent Canada at the Olympics and to win a few medals at the sport’s prestigious events to reflect his commitment and love of triathlon.

When not training or competing, Matthew enjoys cooking, coffee, golf and cyclocross riding. His role models are Simon Whitfield and all of his teammates, along with sport builders.
